While I thank you for that statement, it's not yet sufficient.

The english wikipedia community currently does not accept
"unilaterally deleting out of process" and has severly punished those
who do so.

Due to the nature of the wiki, I can get people to listen to me, but
I cannot give orders. I have to come up with reasoned arguments why
people would voluntarily want to take some course of action.

Could you help me by providing those? Preferably we could do this by
creating a page on the english wikipedia, detailing such reasoning.
